Arkema will exhibit at the JEC Composites 2007 Show, in Paris (France), from April 3rd to 5th 2007.

Arkema is the only chemicals producer in the world to manufacture a range of acrylic block copolymers, marketed under the tradename Nanostrength® their main innovation lies in the use of an acrylic block that is miscible with a large number of polymers, most of which are industrial epoxy resins.

Nanostrength® is produced on a semi-industrial scale in a plant within Arkema's Mont facility (France / Pyrénées-Atlantiques) with a capacity of several hundreds of metric tonnes per year.

Thanks to its BlocBuilder® controlled radical polymerization technology, Arkema also offers the composite market the FlexiBloc™ reactive polymer which allows the nanostructuring of an elastomeric phase within the matrix, affording significantly superior impact strength.

Arkema produces carbon nanotubes marketed under the tradename Graphistrength® at its Lacq site (France / Pyrénées-Atlantiques). The plant's 10 metric tonne/year capacity makes Arkema a major world player in the field of carbon nanotubes.

With these new production capacities, Arkema confirms its ambition to further develop nanostructured materials. Its position as a leader and essential player in this field was boosted in particular by the consolidation of its partnership with Zyvex for the production and distribution of carbon nanotubes, and by the signing of a preferred procurement agreement for carbon nanotubes with Nanoledge
